Problem 1 : 1500 sf Seed Study
 Proposal of a 1500 sf facility for the storage and study of seeds. Constructed entirely out of alternating thin steel profiles joined at points of intersection, the resulting form blurs the lines between interiority and exteriority, creating a dense structural lattice to support plant growth

  Problem 2 : 70,000 sf Landscape for Planting   Proposal of a programmed landscape for planting, using the concept of plant growth over an alternating lattice structure to create shaded areas for recreation, meetings, and study
